Questions & Answers

Q:When putting in a new filter when is the water safe to drink?
by|Jun 14, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hey there! When you install a new filter into your refrigerator, we do advise that you run 2 gallons of cold water through the dispenser before use. You can view more on this on the bottom of page 1 of the filter installation guide here: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/07/076a2dea-7797-40bd-ab9e-4d3946c807b5.pdf. We hope this helps and we're confident this refrigerator and filter will serve you well. -Kacie@GEA

    Q:How long does it take to start dispensing ice after today's installation? Trying to determine if perhaps there is an issue with the waterline or if it's still cooling down.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi there! Thank you so much for reaching out to us. Please know that it can take up to 24 hours for this refrigerator to reach the desired temperature and begin producing ice. If you experience any issues after this 24 hour period, please know that you can always reach our GEA technicians by calling 1-800-432-2737. We hope this helps, and if you ever have additional questions, please know that you can always contact us. Have a wonderful day – Matthew@GEA

      A:  Check your water line and make sure the tap is turned on, run water from the dispensor to verify you have water pressure. It can take up to 24 hours or your fridge to get completely cold and produce ice. If at the end of 24 hours you do not have any ice call our customer service to check the installation. In some homes if you have a reverse osmosis water filter system, the filter system lowers the water pressure and the fridge will not make ice. If this is the case you will need a separate water line tapped in the water sevice before the RO filter to supply the fridge. Mike

        A:  My new Frig delivered a week ago came in withOUT the handles attached and delivery people added it once inside. They gave me the wrench to keep that came with it, so I'm going to say that you can take them off...out of box,,,no handles on it.

                Quality Control Inspection?
                The French doors do not line up with each other. One side is visibly lower than the other. I wonder what quality control inspection consists of?? The refrigerator is sort of noisy compared to our 20-year-old model. Other than those 2 things, we like the refrigerator so far.

                  I’ve had my refrigerator do at least 7-8 years. It has stopped cooling in the top part spoiling the foods in the top and started freezing in the vegetable/ produce drawers just awful.
                  Response from GE_AppliancesNov 1, 2023
                  Hello - Thank you kindly for taking a moment to connect and share what has been happening.

We're confident that they will be able to help get this resolved. You can schedule by calling 1-800-432-2737 or by visiting this link here: (https://www.geappliances.com/ge/service-and-support/service.htm).

                    Nice finish. Good features. Good price. More space than last fridge with same footprint.
                      Expensive/ Loud & Issues have started in year 2
                      What I like: The LED lighting in the refrigerator is nice - no food or drink will hide in this fridge. Being able to lock the water dispenser/ ice dispenser is really nice for those toddler days. Slate finish hides those finger prints. What I don't like: The ice dispenser - is extremely noisy and will often run without dispensing ice. You'll get a couple cubes then wait 10 - 15 seconds while it continues to run only to get 2 more cubes. My parents bought a GE side by side model which was half the price of ours and their ice dispenser is quiet and consistent in dispensing ice. What I really dislike: about 15 months after purchase/ install the freezer started forming this ice block
                      Response from GE_AppliancesOct 2, 2023
                      Hello there! Thank you for your valuable feedback. We are so happy to hear that you are enjoying the lighting in your refrigerator and the lock water/ice dispenser feature. However, we are so sorry to hear of the noise your icemaker is making. We have provided some normal icemaker sounds at the link below. If your icemaker is making a sound not listed, service may be needed. https://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=23435&_ga=2.131526540.2006009590.1696259236-2082806389.1677780257 We appreciate you choosing GE Appliances for your home, and we hope to gain your confidence back with our products. - Adrian@GEAppliances
                        Like GE but...
                        French doors are adjustable up & down to level the 2 doors but the top of the doors cannot be adjusted left to right. The gap between the 2 doors on ours is wider at the bottom than at the top and the upper left shelf scrapes the right door when opening. I really do not see any difference with the "Turbo Cooling." Temp in the fridge is consistently 3-5 degrees warmer than setting. During dinner prep temp will climb to 43 and it takes hours to get back down to 39. The 'auto fill' water sensor stops about half the time with an error code. Frost is forming on the ice maker door seal.
                          Great look!
                          I love the look and space of this refrigerator! I only wish it had a larger ice compartment but the style and lighting inside makes it such a nice addition to our kitchen!

                              Has Faulty Door - Hoping to have it Replaced
                              It seems like a nice refrigerator - much like the GE Cafe' refrigerator we have at our other house (which we like). The right hand door on this fridge has something wrong with it. It doesn't line up with the door on the left, and it seems to bind when you try to close it - like it is warped or there is something wrong with the construction. The company I purchased it from is ordering me a new door, but it doesn't speak much for the quality of the product. Once this is fixed, I might boost my rating of the product.
                              Response from GE_AppliancesAug 3, 2023
                              Thank you for leaving us your review. We are so sorry to hear that the right-hand door on your refrigerator is not aligned. This is not the consumer experience that we strive for, and we are deeply apologetic. We are confident that your replacement door will resolve this issue and you can enjoy your refrigerator for many years to come. We are honored to have you as a part of the GE Appliances family. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance. - Adrian@GEA
